I am delighted to share that my poem, Trail of Cohosh, is published at Free Verse Revolution!
Free Verse Revolution delights in sharing the writing of writers around the world written in response to its monthly theme. October’s theme is reflection, a feeling I think is deeply connected to autumn.
I wrote Trail of Cohosh in response to a previous monthly theme on Free Verse Revolution, but it was not published and another writer had the opportunity to share their words with the world instead. This brought me as much happiness as sharing my own writing.
I held onto Trail of Cohosh; it is good writing.
September at Free Verse Revolution came and I wrote a poem, now published, for it.
Heading into October, I loved the new theme ‘reflection‘ but I was not called to write anything. Then I happened to open my Trail of Cohosh document and was struck at how perfectly the writing commemorated reflection.
I take this experience as a reminder that there is a home for everything I write. Write what you love and find a home for it after your passion is down in words. Conversely, find something you are interested in submitting to or writing for and still find your way to write what you love.
I invite you to enjoy Trail of Cohosh, experience the journey, and keep journeying.
Touch tears from your cheeks
To your fingertips
To the grass
When you come full circle
Only to find the ash of your smile . . . please continue reading here and feel free to share your beautiful thoughts!
